Sour Cream Banana Bread- The sour cream makes this bread extra moist, and the cinnamon adds a fun punch of flavor. So yummy!

This Sour Cream Banana Bread recipe will blow you away! I know you’re all thinking, “What, another banana bread recipe? I already have one of those!”

But my family enjoyed (actually inhaled is a better word) this sour cream banana bread so much that I just had to share it. I have made this recipe before, but I forgot to add the cinnamon, so they weren’t exactly the same. You can’t really tell they have cinnamon in them, they just taste extra yummy and you don’t know why.

Sour Cream Banana Muffins- a delicious twist on regular banana muffins!

Plus the sour cream makes them extra moist. No kidding, my boys and hubbie finished them off in a matter of minutes. I was lucky to get a photo. Next time I will have to hide some in my craft room so I can snack on them later in the day. 😉

This recipe can easily be made into banana muffins. I usually make a dozen muffins, and two mini loaves, but you can do whatever you like. I have included the baking instructions for all three options at the bottom.

  1. I love these! We’ve made them four times and I usually just make 12 muffins and put the rest in a 9 x 13 cake pan so it cooks faster. I’m not patient enough to wait an hour for the loaf pans
